Grandparents’ Rights Attorney in Cherry Hill, NJ
Divorce Lawyer Providing Guidance and Counsel To South Jersey Grandparents Throughout Camden, Burlington and Gloucester Counties
Grandparents play a special role in the lives of their grandchildren. Unfortunately, divorce, substance abuse, family discord and other life circumstances can sometimes stand in the way of grandparents continuing to build and strengthen their relationships with their grandchildren.
I am Cherry Hill grandparents’ rights lawyer Lois Garber Schwartz, and I represent grandparents pursuing child custody or visitation in situations where a parent is incapable of properly caring for a child due to alcoholism, addiction, mental illness or family violence. Many of my clients have played a substantial parental role for a significant portion of their grandchildren’s young lives and are now seeking court approval of a custody and/or visitation arrangement that has existed (informally) for years.

Grandparents’ Rights And The Best Interests Of The Child
In recent years, more and more grandparents have been going to court to establish legal rights to spend time with their grandchildren. In New Jersey, you may face an uphill battle when trying to formalize visitation and/or custody with your grandchild. I am an experienced, skilled attorney who knows the law and will work hard to ensure that the best interests of your grandchild are protected.
New Jersey law looks to a child’s best interests in determining whether to award custody or visitation rights to grandparents. Generally, before obtaining a court order for visitation with a grandchild, grandparents are required to prove that they have established a relationship with the child and that not having that relationship would be detrimental to the child’s well-being.
With more than 30 years of family law experience, I can help you understand your rights, guide you through this process and assist you in making the best possible decisions for your grandchild.
